The former Liverpool forward said: “I have always been a worker. I know people think of me as a player who only wants to score goals but, more than anything, I want Bolton to win games and I am always prepared to work hard for the team.
“It’s not all about Diouffy scoring. If I score and the team loses, that is no good. If I don’t score and we win, I am happy.
“You can’t win games like that without working hard. I know that and that is what I am always prepared to do.
“But I am not the only one. Kevin Davies works, Nicolas Anelka works, we all work for the team and for the gaffer.
“We are team-mates and we all work together for each other. Sometimes the games will be hard for us, but that’s OK.
“People might be surprised that Diouffy is happy working hard but I have always known that there is more to football than scoring goals.”
